EZ Rampz is happy to say that we will be attending the Good Samaritan Hospice’s fifth annual Roanoke Hike for Hospice. The event is scheduled for Sunday, September 8th from 1:30pm – 4:30pm at Explore Park, located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The day will begin with a personal hike (easy and intermediate routes available) through the heart of Explore Park to the main event area located at the historic Houtz Barn where you can cool off at our EZ Rampz relaxation station (right by the big top tent) and try out one of our comfortable recliner lift chairs as you cool off.
Golf carts will be available to shuttle those who cannot hike to the main event area.
At the main event hikers will enjoy a catered BBQ lunch, free Scoop Ice Cream Truck treats, live bluegrass music, raffle prizes, vendors (including massage therapy and music therapy exhibits), a yoga demo, and games. There will also be optional group excursion hikes led by Walkabout Outfitter and the Society of American Foresters. The days festivities will conclude with a moment of reflection and a dove-release.
This year’s Roanoke Hike for Hospice coincides with national Grandparents Day! In honor of the guidance and love that grandparents bring to our families, there will be a “wisdom sharing” Grandparents Day booth with complimentary family photos. Bring your grandparents with you to this year’s Roanoke Hike for Hospice and celebrate them during the family friendly event!
Funds raised from the fifth annual Roanoke Hike for Hospice will support Good Samaritan Hospice’s extensive bereavement program.
